“Like a red morn, that ever yet betoken’d Wrack to the seaman, tempest to the field, Sorrow to shepherds, woe unto the birds, Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.” Shakespeare – Venus & Adonis (1593)

Waterland is both water and land. Thousands of brooks, small canals, rivers and lakes flow in between reclaimed land. Where the water reflects the sky, the lush green pastures patch their pattern from the Dutch Golden Age.
